Center For Biological Physics

Arizona State University

The Center for Biological Physics (CBP) conducts research into biological phenomena using the tools and methods of physics. Our interests span biomolecules, systems biology, and cellular dynamics.

Our faculty have expertise in a wide range of experimental, theoretical, and computational methods. We collaborate widely on both basic and applied research questions — from the fundamental principles of life to translational research in biomedicine. We have a vibrant interdisciplinary environment, centered in a dedicated and interactive physical space in the physical sciences building.

Our Center comprises 24 core faculty members with home appointments in physics, chemistry, and engineering, many graduate students and postdoctoral researchers, and our program manager.

We welcome inquiries from prospective graduate students. Please contact the Center Director Banu Ozkan or the Associate Director Robert Ros.
